Happy Friday friends! I've been all about wearing comfy dresses lately, but sad to see all the pants and shorts I have go to waste because they wouldn't fit my expanding waistline. So, I finally broke down and got a Bellaband…the pant lifesaver. Now I can get a bit more use out of them…hurrah! I'm so happy to be able to wear my green pants again! Hope you have a great weekend…I am off to get some fried chicken with friends before wrapping up my work day… — Joy

Also, Congrats to Clara H. from San Antonio, TX {#1683} for being our lucky winner of the Kate Spade giveaway! Thanks so much to all of you who took the time to answer the survey. We have another fun giveaway coming Tuesday…

  1. You’re lucky that works! My hips definitely spread and my thighs and butt got too big to pull up my pre-preggo pants pretty quickly! But you’re lookin’ cute 🙂

  2. You’re on the verge of being too cute! You look great preggo! I loved my bellaband too! It works magic, like smoothing out any hangover in the love handle region…buaha. Doesn’t look like you have that though!

  3. Haha I was going to say the same thing as mj. The band wouldn’t work for me because my ass got so fat. And probably from my newfound pregnant lady fondness of sausages more so than just being pregnant. So go on with your tummy-getting-bigger-but-ass-stays-the-same self! 🙂

  4. Hi Joy!
    I love your blog and to see your work on graphic design.
    I´m an architect who´s thinking about starting a career on graphic design, but have no idea how to start! I know it´s a very open question, but what would you suggest me to start with? Graphic design softwares, for example… photoshop, illustrator, indesign? If I could have some opinion from an expert like you, I´d be thankful.
    Regards,

  5. I’m not saying anything new here…but seriously…you look Great!! I hope I look 1/2 as beautiful as you do if I am ever pregnant! It’s awesome to see a woman totally embracing & celebrating her pregnant shape 🙂

  6. thx for posting about the bellaband! i’m looking to buy it now..i’m 22 weeks pregnant (right behind you!) – good luck on your pregnancy 🙂 girl or boy?

  7. you look so cute! i think i’m 3 weeks ahead of you (almost 29 weeks) and sadly i haven’t worn any of my pre-pregnancy pants/jeans/skirts for a while. I got away with the rubberband trick to hold up jeans for a bit but had to retire both the rubberband and the jeans after i realized i was probably flashing everyone when my shirt lifted up! haha.

  8. I love your outfit for 25 weeks, you look gorgeous. I look forward to seeing your yummy baby girl following her mummies footsteps and looking the same

  9. Hi Joy!
    I love your blog and check it daily, I’m a graphic designer working in Cincinnati, OH, so i always love all of your posts 🙂
    I have been desperately looking for those Zara green pants FOREVER! I’m guessing you got them at a store near you, but do you know of any way to get them online? I would love some help!
    Thanks

  10. Hi Ashley,
    Yeah, I got them at a Zara store, as they dont sell online. Id call around to some stores in your area and see if they can check store and if any of the stores have them. They can prob ship to you from a store if they find them. Otherwise, Id try ebay and do a saved search that way if anyone is selling theirs, youd be alerted 😉
    Best!
    Joy

  11. Can I just say that it’s totally unfair that you are able to pull off skinny pants while pregnant and still eat fried chicken? 🙂 You are too cute!

  12. If I am half as cute as you when I’m pregnant, I will be one happy mama! I hope you are feeling well and enjoying the journey. She is going to be one lucky little lady : )

  13. Bellaband saved me too when none of my pants fit. I had 1 pair of maternity jeans and didn’t want to waste $$ buying anymore.
    You look adorable!

  14. Hi,
    I am 25 weeks also, isn’t it exciting!
    I love the shiny spots on your background wall of this photo, I would love to put these into my nursery, where did you source them from?
    I am loving your baby nursery ideas, so inspirational.
    Thanks
